Hi

I'm planning Scenario 1
I make no navigation zone for seeing the flight path (Any other solutions please propose)

Also i mark the position on the map where i need tanker support
for example the C-5A Galaxy need at about 4800nm support from a KC-10A Extender from Ramstein.
The Galaxy will arrive at 09:00 Zulu time.

I was actually playing with map projections for this as well, and used the Wolfram tools to create a map. The Gnomonic projection makes great circle routes into straight lines at the cost of substantial distortion. Basically draw a straight line through the start and ending locations, and that's the path the aircraft will try to take.

This projection is centered on the 60N, 20W NW OF IRELAND datum that the message suggested putting tankers

What are the tasks and objectives for Scenario 1? The briefing in game provides no guidance as far as I can tell, on what the player is supposed to do in this scenario. I searched the doc directory but don't see any information on Desert Storm.

The tasks are revealed as special messages as the game clock (and your progress) moves.

The first one is to set up several refueling tracks with the KC-10s, get the majority of the fighters/attack/recon/cargo aircraft to Incirlik, and the F-15s at Langley to Dhahran.

As the special messages are not repeated, I recommend copying-pasting them to a text editor.

Thanks. Where are the aircraft located that are supposed to be moved? It would be really helpful if the briefing outlined what needs to be accomplished. Isn't that the purpose of a briefing?

chops, the first special message contains exact destination AFBs for moved aircraft. Just start a scenario and wait a moment.

Ok thank you. I was trying to come up with a plan before I started the scenario.

I'm planning this scenario now, and I created a no-nav zone over Switzerland, Austria, and most of Eastern Europe.

Historically, the Coalition didn't get permission to overfly Switzerland and Austria until some time after Iraq invaded Kuwait. The Warsaw Pact was still a thing in August 1990 even though the Berlin Wall fell in November 1989. East Germany was still a separate state (though not for long), and the Soviet Union didn't disintegrate until 1992.

Bottom line: in 1990 aircraft on their way from CONUS to the Middle East would not have flown over eastern Germany, Poland, or Soviet territory.

This is my no-nav zone for the neutral countries (Switzerland and Austria) and eastern Europe. The zone extends to 80°N so I can assign aircraft in CONUS to Ferry missions without CMANO picking a shortest route that goes around the north side of the zone (over Soviet territory.)

Aircraft ferrying to Incirlik from CONUS will follow a great circle route across the Atlantic then pass over Chambery, France and Corfu, Greece en route to Turkey.

Aircraft based in West Germany and the UK will avoid Swiss airspace, then head east near Chambery to Corfu and on to Incirlik.
